VNC does not provide functionality similar to terminal server. It only 
remotes the screen and keyboard. On unix-like oses it runs as xserver so 
you can do this by running multiple vncserver instances. On windows it 
does not work this way. You will need to use terminal server license and 
software. Terminal server plays some sort of trickery with os where it 
creates some virtual screens that are not displayed on the real one. VNC 
merely transmits changes on the display to the remote machine.
